I’d get a bit ticked off when I’d hear that watch go “Ping” to signal me to breathe and would mutter “I am breathing cause if I wasn’t I would be dead!” Then I realized there were times I was holding my breath which were the times I was deep in thought, stressed out or just plain angry. I began monitoring my breathing patterns on my own and trying to focus on each moment. I think it’s working because now when I hear, “Ping” I simply smile and say, “I know, I know” and exhale. How do you exhale?
